NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen discussed NATO missions in Afghanistan and Kosovo and security in the wider Balkans with Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama on Tuesday (17 September 2013). “Albania makes a valuable contribution to NATO. You make a valuable contribution to our missions in Afghanistan and Kosovo. And through your cooperation with your neighbours, you make a valuable contribution to security across the region,” the Secretary General said. He stressed, “this is a time of hope and opportunity in the Western Balkans, a time to build for the future, not look to the past.”
The Secretary General thanked Prime Minister Rama for visiting NATO so early in his term as a strong signal of his personal commitment to the Alliance.
